Autism on Broadway

Did you know there are “autism-friendly” shows on Broadway?

Children with autism are often sensitive to loud noises and bright lighting.  Sometimes it’s difficult to sit still as well.

But these new shows are specifically designed to remove the jarring sounds and strobe lights that bother  people with autism.

There are even beanbag chairs for those to who need something a little more comfortable!

Apparently the shows have been very successful because more are planned in the future.

The Theatre Development Fund is a non-profit organization that plans to offer special showings of ” The Lion King” and “Mary Poppins” later this year.

Isn’t this fantastic?  What a blessing for families who care for kids with autism.
